Walter "Buzz" Arthur Byron - January 24, 1926 - August 08, 2004 - Peacefully, on the morning of August 8, 2004, at the St. Boniface Hospital Palliative Unit, surrounded by his loving family, Buzz passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. He leaves to mourn his passing, his beloved wife of 54 years, Thelma, daughters Roxanne and fiancé Barry Anderson, Jennifer, Allison Jakilazek and husband Ed Grassick, as well as his dear grandchildren Liz Panting, Christopher Panting, and Lana Jakilazek. Also surviving are his sisters Olga Zarubick of Kincardine, ON, Addie Castle and husband Dave of Winnipeg and their families, as well as numerous other relatives. Buzz was predeceased by his parents John and Eva Bohush, and his brothers Billy and Russell. Born in Winnipeg on January 24th, 1926, Buzz grew up on Barber Street in Point Douglas, attending Norquay School and St. John’s High School. He enjoyed playing football with his friends and was active at the Sutherland Mission, which was run by the United Church. He loved sports, but also had a great passion for writing and for amateur theatre. Buzz enjoyed a long career with CNCP Telecommunications, retiring in 1986. Aside from his family, Buzz’s greatest passion was fishing. He was a great fisherman with several master angler awards and was a member of the Elmwood Legion Wildlife Association for many years. He also enjoyed golfing with his buddies and curling with the Fort Rouge Curling Club. Buzz was not one to go unnoticed and made friends wherever he went, whether it was the ladies at the local Safeway, the pharmacists at the drug store or the receptionist at the dental office. He had nicknames for everyone he ever met. Dad had a very unique and creative way with words. As a young man, at the U of M in 1945, he wrote articles for “The Manitoban” under the heading “Bohush Writes”. “Grandog” was adored by his grandchildren, who will deeply miss him, his fascinating stories and his wonderful way with words. The family wishes to thank all of the caregivers for their kindness and compassion. We would also like to thank everyone for their love and support during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Buzz’s memory to the Canadian Cancer Society, Hospice and Palliative Care Manitoba or you can give the gift of life. Call 1-888-2-DONATE and make an appointment to donate blood. A memorial service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 14, 2004 at Glen Lawn Funeral Home, 455 Lagimodiere Blvd, (south of the Royal Canadian Mint). A gathering of family and friends to follow in the reception centre. Arrangements entrusted to: GLEN LAWN FUNERAL HOME 455 LAGIMODIERE BLVD. 982-7550
